Get to know your Olympics Co-Directors

Olympics Co-Directors Anh Nguyen & Jennifer Vu

Jennifer Vu: Hi, my name is Jennifer Vu. I am currently a second year undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying Integrative Biology and Global Poverty and Practice. I've been in the Cal Vietnamese Student Association for the past year as well as UVSA as Berkeley's Intercollegiate Council Representative and the ICC Chair. I really love working with UVSA because I get to work with and meet new people who share similar cultural backgrounds as I do. It's refreshing and invigorating to be able to collaborate with such amazing individuals from the NorCal UVSA region. As I finish my ICC term, I hope to be able to bring the UVSA region closer together.

Anh Nguyen: Hello, my name is Anh Nguyen. I am currently a second year undergraduate at Cal Berkeley studying Integrative Biology. In the previous semester, I was Academics Chair for Cal VSA but became an ICC representative to meet other VSAs as well as to expand communications and build connections with people from different schools. Being in this position has allowed me to meet so many great peers from so many different backgrounds. More than anything, I greatly enjoy the interschool bonds that I have formed and will continue to create with my fellow VSA members.
